UK-based prodco and digital channel operator Barcroft Media is teaming up with UK-based distributor TCB Media Rights to prep a long-form version of Barcroft’s web series Extreme Love.

The series, spawned from a 3 x 10-minute short-form series of the same name, documents stories of unconventional romances, including that of a young lady from Florida who lives with her 24-year-old boyfriend and is treated as an “adult baby” in the relationship. Other stories follow real-life “vampire” couples and twins who share a boyfriend.

The short-form series has thus far racked up more than 146 million views via the Barcroft TV YouTube channel, and more than 42 million views via Facebook’s Watch platform in just five months, according to the prodco.

Through the deal, TCB will acquire worldwide rights to shop an 8 x 60-minute version of the series.

“We are delighted to be collaborating with TCB Media Rights to deliver this fantastic new series,” said Barcroft Media CEO Sam Barcroft in a statement. “People are endlessly fascinated by unusual relationships and now we get to supersize this subculture for television.”
